Give thanks and praise to God above,
For everlasting is His love;
Praise Him, ye saints, your Savior praise,
Forever good in all His ways.
Let all His servants tell abroad
The never-failing grace of God;
Let all who fear Jehovah’s name
His everlasting love proclaim.
In bondage of distress and grief
To God I cried, and sought relief;
In wondrous love He heard my plea
And set my soul at liberty.
Though foes assail I will not fear,
For at my side the Lord is near;
The Lord my helper, I shall win
The victory o’er the hosts of sin.
Who put their trust in God most high
On everlasting strength rely;
Their confidence shall pass away
Who make the arm of flesh their stay.
